Typically reserved for Max himself, Signature Series eyepro kits from the champion shooter’s private stock are available for your purchase. The Max Michel Signature Series Sawfly Eyewear Kit features a custom high-contrast Mocha lens and is the exact kit that Max brings with him on competition day. All 4 performance-enhancing lenses are laser etched with Max’s signature “MM” logo.

How much of a difference does it make wearing glasses? and if so is it worth spending the money for the big name brand ones?

It can make a world of difference in the right settings. I definitely live by the you get what you pay for with some exceptions so I would recommend buying a nice pair the first time around with interchangeable lenses.

Shooter i really didn't even think about that, but that is very true you only get two eyes. once there gone you can kiss shooting goodbye.

Doc i completely agree with "you get what you pay for", with my experiences so far with buying not only guns and gun accessories but with everyday things if you go for the cheaper and poop quality stuff that you will regret it in the long run.

Those glasses are great for shooting when reaction time and targets set at different positions. For bench work I prefer plain safety glasses with blinders.

I am someone who goes to the range to shoot sporting clays about once a month, is it worth the $180 for the glasses?
